SHOW BIZ KIDS
Rickie Lee Jones


After closing time

At the country Fair

I detect the El Supremo

In the room at the top of the stairs


Well I've been around the world

And I've been in the Washington Zoo

And in all my travels

As the facts unravel

I've found this to be true


While the poor people sleepin'

With the shade on the light

While the poor people sleepin'

All the stars come out at night


While the poor people sleepin'

With the shade on the light

While the poor people sleepin'

All the stars come out at night


They got the house on the corner

With the rug inside

They got the booze they need

All that money can buy


They got the shapely bods

They got the Steely Dan T-shirt

And for the coup-de-gras

They're outrageous

So honey let me tell you how


While the poor people sleepin'

With the shade on the light

While the poor people sleepin'

All the stars come out at night


While the poor people sleepin'

With the shade on the light

While the poor people sleepin'

All the stars come out at night


Show biz kids making movies of themselves

They don't give a fuck about anybody else


While the poor people sleepin'

With the shade on the light

While the poor people sleepin'

All the stars come out at night


While the poor people sleepin'

With the shade on the light

While the poor people sleepin'

All the stars come out at night
